The Rittgers & Rittgers law firm's personal injury lawyers have investigated many truck accidents, so we waste no time in starting the process. Our attorneys and the experts we bring to the case examine the accident scene and collect evidence.
We examine the log books to determine if the driver had been behind the wheel for too long. We go through the mechanical records. Was the equipment properly maintained? We check the freight weight, examine the personnel and training records of the driver, investigate adherence to DOT regulations, and determine if there were any prior incidents. Was the driver on drugs or alcohol? Was the driver distracted by a cellphone, navigation equipment, onboard faxes, or texting?
We pursue all available liable parties in a truck accident.
In addition to getting the facts about an accident, our lawyers assess liabilities. In a truck accident, there may be multiple liable parties. When the injuries are serious, that can increase the available financial resources for the injured person or the family of a wrongful death victim. On an 18-wheeler semi, the tractor and trailer may have different owners. Owners of the cargo, the maintenance firm or others may be liable.
Our job as personal injury attorneys is to find the liable parties, document current and future medical needs, make the insurance claims, and assure that the victims are properly compensated.
